Honda will unveil an electric version of its Riding Assist self-balancing motorcycle at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2018 indicating they could be the first to market with this technology.
While such technology may seem pointless to many riders, there would be a lot of usesfor this sort of motorcycle.
For example, police, security officers, paramedics and couriers would appreciate being able to use both hands for something other than steering. They would also be able to just step off their bike and leave it without having to put down a sidestand.
Commuters and novice riders who just want transport, not the thrills of riding, might also appreciate the assistance.
The self-balancing Riding Assist Honda was first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year.
